Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

My 2004 jeep grand cherokee has misfirein cylinder 6 and governor pressure 3# code. It has been misfiring at idle after changing from platinum plugs to copper core. I switched back to platinums and it got worse immediately. As it warms up it gets worse and worse to the point that it kicks in to limp mode. I have chaged the plugs, cleaned the pvc, cleaned the cranck case vent, cleaned the IAC. what is causing this?

SOURCE: IAC Valve Location - 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

The idle air control valve is located on the back of the throttle body. It has an oval electrical connector and two torx screws holding it in. Unplug the connector, remove the two screws then lightly tap the body with a soft faced mallet to loosen it from the body. 
Once you have it out and prior to installing a new valve clean the seat inside the throttle body where the idle control fits. This must be very clean! Installation is in the reverse order. 
 To save some cash, pull the valve out and clean it with throttle body cleaner, this usually fixes the problem for quite a while.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Pull the plugs and compare them to the pictures in repair manual, ie: Chilton's or Hayne's. May be a bad injector flooding them or an intake leak causing a lean condition.

Rough idle random cylinder misfire

misfires are more from problem injectors, low fuel pressure or injector wiring than from plugs
have a fuel pressure test done to check for problem pressure regulator , problem fuel pump , blocked m/dirty filter
one other area of concern is the EVAP system where the purge valve doesn't vent the tank properly and causes low fuel flow rates

Cylinder 4 misfire, someone said plugs? if so what type or brand is recommended. Idles rough/and stutters-shutters esp a speed up to 50mph.

I use Bosch platinum plugs in my Jeep Grand Wagoneer. I recommend nothing less than double platinum. Bosch makes a platinum plug with 4 electrodes - these are great because you don't have to set the gap on them. I have an 8 cylinder and these plugs aren't exactly cheap, but, with these rising gas prices, they DO make a difference in performance and mileage. Hope this helps!!

1999 jeep cherokee 6 cylinder engine light

2. Vacuum leak
3. Injector fault
4. High or low fuel pressure.
Thats the list of things to check.
This is a #3 cylinder misfire.
There is also TSB about #3 injector needing added heat protection. This could definitely be the cause. I start at plugs and go from there.
Hope this helps.
Thank you,
